The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the human remains may be to The Tribes. Consultation Representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to request transfer of control of these human remains should submit a written request with information in support of the request to B. Sunday Eiselt, Department of Anthropology, Southern Methodist University, 3225 Daniel Avenue, Heroy Hall #450, Dallas, TX 75205, telephone (214) 768–2915, email seiselt@smu.edu, by June 29, 2020. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to The Tribes may proceed. The Department of Anthropology, Southern Methodist University is responsible for notifying The Tribes that this notice has been published. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Department of Anthropology, Southern Methodist University professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana; Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Tonkawa Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma; and the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes (Wichita, Keechi, Waco & Tawakonie), Oklahoma (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’). History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Somervell County, TX. The only provenience information provided for these long bone fragments is ‘‘41SV’’. This is the state and county designation for Somerville, TX. Only SMU worked on the Squaw Creek Reservoir project in Somerville. Consequently, SMU has determined that more likely than not, these human remains derive from that project. Since this is the only extant contextual information, it is impossible to associate the human remains with any artifacts from the site. Consequently, these human remains cannot be assigned to any time period or culture. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Determinations Made by the Department of Anthropology, Southern Methodist University Officials of the Department of Anthropology, Southern Methodist University have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice are Native American, based on geographical location. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe. • According to final judgements of the Indian Claims Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, the land from which the Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of The Tribes.
